About Us


John Arnold Publishing Ltd first started life way back in 1971 when John Evans and Arnold Machin started a framing company called John Arnold Prints in Biddulph, Stoke on Trent . In 1974 they decided to concentrate on the prints side of the business and the name changed to John Arnold Publishers.

The company soon built a reputation for supplying quality prints at competitive prices. It was no surprise then when the business moved to bigger premises in Hanley, Stoke on Trent .

In 1986 John Evans left the company to start his own publishing business.

Later that year Joyce Armit took Johns place and together Joyce and Arnold continued take the business from strength to strength.

With the help of Mandy, Joyce's daughter John Arnold Publishers became one of the largest print suppliers in the UK .

In 2002 Arnold and Joyce retired and the business was sold as a going concern to Mike Mcnee and Rob Jackson.

The name changed again to John Arnold Publishing Ltd and the company was moved to even bigger premises in Speke – Liverpool .

In May 2003 and Sept 2004 John Arnold Publishing Ltd acquired the stock of both Capital prints and Kingfisher Prints who at the time were two of the UK's largest suppliers of Traditional images exporting pictures to 1000's of customers worldwide.

These clever acquisitions by John Arnold Publishing Ltd has made them one of Europe's leading publishing houses with 100's of artists on their books and 100 000's of prints in their warehouse.
